A Note of Gratitude

I want to thank my mentor and employer, Paul Harvey, without who’s editing and attention, this little book would not be possible. I wish to also thank Paul for introducing me to ozone many years ago. I suffered for many years from a variety of ailments; a reasonable person would say “Ozone saved my life”. I also wish to thank Bob Proctor for inspiring me, and Nikola Tesla, a hero of mine for decades, for showing me that great genius can be used humanely. Last but certainly not least, my wife and daughter, who continue to believe in me.


A Brief History and Summary of Ozonated Oils


It all starts with oxygen


         . Oxygen is required for almost every process in the human body. You can only live about 5 minutes without oxygen. Energy production comes from 2 sources - aerobic or anaerobic. Aerobic means with oxygen. Anaerobic means without oxygen. When we produce energy without oxygen, it produces lactic acid, which causes the “sore feeling” in muscles. The mitochondria of the cells produce the energy. They breakdown complex sugars and produce energy, water and wastes. When there is not enough oxygen present, the process slips into the toxic anaerobic process. 

          The human body, by molecular weight, is composed primarily of oxygen. Oxygen has a molecular weight of 16. Hydrogen’s molecular weight of 1 makes water (H2O) = molecular weight 18. The human body is about 70% water, with 16/18 of water being oxygen by weight. A simple calculation shows us that if we take 16/18 (8/9) times 70% we get 56%. This does not include all the oxygen trapped in minerals (calcium, zinc, magnesium, etc) and all other forms of oxides. So what does this mean? It means that by weight, you have more oxygen in you than any other element, by quite a bit. My estimate is we are supposed to be 60% oxygen.  As you can see, oxygen is the most important and most abundant element in the human body. You literally start to die after 5 minutes without oxygen. At about 10 minutes without it permanent brain damage sets in, and death is near. Every cell in your body needs oxygen.


What is ozone?


Pure oxygen is mostly found in Nature or medical settings as O2 (2 oxygen atoms bound together). This is a stable form of oxygen. Ozone is an unstable form of oxygen.  Ozone is formed when O2 is passed through electricity (cold corona discharge or plasma field) or through UV radiation. The O2 is then activated, and is able to form a new molecule O3, or ozone.  Ozone is not a stable element; it is highly reactive. In normal use ozone lasts about 45 minutes. Ozone is found in the atmosphere when UV radiation reacts with oxygen or after thunderstorms, from the lightning.  So to summarize, oxygen is O2 and ozone is O3. *Schönbein (see footnote 1 for more on Schonbein) is credited with first discovering Ozone. His discovery dates back to 1840. This discovery was presented to the University of München. He called this gas 'ozone', which in turn is from ozein, the Greek word for scent. Moreover, Schönbein is mentioned as the first person to research the reaction mechanisms of ozone and organic matter. Ozone is one of the best recognized smells in the world as humans can often smell it at 0.020 parts per million.


How does ozone work?


Ozone is considered as one of the best healers in the world. It has been used around the world for almost every ailment known to man - Alzheimers, AID’s, Hepatitis, Cancer, cardiovascular problems, heart attack, stroke, etc  The list is almost endless. Part of ozone’s appeal is that it has been found to be extremely safe in treatment settings. Patients very rarely report any adverse reactions. Dosages are safe in a wide range, and the use of ozone is actually a very pleasant experience including a pronounced analgesic (pain relief) effect.  Ozone works to help heal the body, destroy pathogens and remove toxins/pollution. Ozone oxidizes toxins it encounters while in the body; this helps to eliminate the toxins. The more toxins that are removed, the better the body functions, and the better the patient feels. The other point is that virtually all pathogens (virus, bacteria, fungus) have at least 1 part of their lifecycle as anaerobic (Unable to live in oxygen). Remember that ozone is O3 while O2 is the normal stable form of oxygen and ozone will return to that form. It will “give up” one atom of oxygen. This one atom of oxygen is negatively charged, and conveniently, most pathogens are positively charged, so they are attracted to each other. When that lone oxygen meets the pathogen, it destroys it. The pathogen is anaerobic, and cannot live with active oxygen. **Otto Warburg first discovered that it is impossible for cancer to grow in the presence of active oxygen (see footnote 2 for more on Otto Warburg). This basic premise applies to most pathogens. Beyond all of this, ozone is actually found to stimulate the immune function, increasing white blood cell counts and activity, along with other immune system responses. Ozone can flood the body or area with oxygen.  To summarize, ozone removes toxins, removes chemicals/pollution, kills pathogens, and increases immune function and response. . Ozone floods the body or area with oxygen, often eliminating deficiencies and speeding up the healing process. A side effect of ozone therapy is that blood can hold more oxygen after ozone therapy than before the therapy, it has to do with elasticity of the cells, and oxygen retention.


What is ozonated oil?


Ozonated oils are plant oils that are either completely saturated with ozone or lightly saturated. The saturation of the oil is done by bubbling ozone through various oils (olive, coconut, grape seed, etc), in an ozone-safe container (glass). When the ozone passes through the oil it is changed. A new gaseous substance is formed normally referred to as terpene gas. Unlike pure ozone, terpene is safe to breathe and terpene has been used for a variety of ailments including asthma, bronchitis, tuberculosis, etc. The process of creating fully ozonated oil continues until instead of terpene gas coming off the oil, you get pure raw ozone (meaning the oil will not hold any more ozone). The texture of the oil changes, often getting solid or waxy (depending on the temperature). This process can take quite awhile (weeks with a normal unit) or less time if you run parallel units. Oils hold quite a bit of ozone, so bringing them to saturation takes some time. The reaction results in a small amount of ozone, but more of a peroxide/ozonide being created and stored in the oil. 

Part of the broad appeal of ozonated oil is that unlike ozone in the air or water, which lasts 6 to 45 minutes, ozone in oil can last 10 or more years if properly stored. Add to this benefit the fact that you can easily apply ozonated oil on hard to reach places (unlike a gas), and you understand its true potential and power.  Arguably the most powerful mind in the 20th century is credited with discovering ozonated oils. He is none other than ***Nikola Tesla (See footnote 3 for more on Tesla). Tesla started marketing his oils to local doctors in the early 1900’s.

Below you see the amount of ozone held by each of the products. The ozone is measured in molecular weight. The higher the weight listed below, the more ozone/peroxide it is carrying, and therefore the more powerful its benefits. The amount of fatty acids present in each type of oil before ozonation limits how much ozone it will hold. The higher the fatty acids, the more ozone the oil holds.



Molecular Weight of Ozone in Product:

Olive              approx. 13.9 gm per 100ml

Sunflower       approx. 13.6 gm per 100ml

Grape Seed    approx 9.3 gm per 100ml

Macadamia    approx 7.6 gm per 100ml

Coconut         approx 3.8 gm per 100ml


Uses of Ozonated Oil


The list of uses for ozonated oil is quite large. Virtually any skin condition including acne, burns, sun burn, blisters, warts, poison ivy, poison oak, ringworm, toenail fungus, haemorrhoids, skin rejuvenator, very potent healing massage oil, bug bites and stings, cuts, scrapes, bruises etc. Other uses are on the gums for periodontal problems/disease, sexual lubricant, jock itch, fistulae, fungal problems, beauty cream, dandruff and age spots. The list gets longer as people experiment and find it to work wonders for man and beast. Do not put ozonated oils in the eyes.


Why You Need Ozonated Oil


Ozonated oils offer a low cost and portable form of ozone/oxygen therapy. They also are able to treat hard to reach areas. As with all forms of ozone/oxygen therapy, it has no real toxicity. I personally have seen poison ivy cured with 1 application of fully ozonated olive oil.  Ozonated oils deliver oxygen therapy to the skin. The product will last 10+ years if stored properly (refrigerated).


Ozonated oil in the household can replace a cabinet full of medical supplies, because of its broad spectrum of healing & germicidal effects. You can replace your burn cream, your fungal cream, your Neosporin, your acne cream, your beauty cream and your facial cream. Unlike most treatments, Ozone actually treats the cause of the problems, not just the symptom. That is why we often hear from our customers “1 treatment cured me after so many years of suffering”.

1 from Wikipedia.com

Christian Friedrich Schönbein (18 October 1799 – 29 August 1868) was a German-Swiss chemist who is best known for inventing the fuel cell (1838) and his discoveries of guncotton and ozone.

It was while doing experiments on the electrolysis of water at the University of Basel that Schönbein first began to notice a distinctive odor in his laboratory.[2] This smell gave Schönbein the clue to the presence of a new product from his experiments. Because of the pronounced smell, Schönbein coined the term ‘ozone’ for the new gas, from the Greek word ‘ozein’, meaning ‘to smell’. Schönbein described his discoveries in publications in 1840.[3] He later found that the smell of ozone was similar to that produced by the slow oxidation of white phosphorus.[4]

The ozone smell Schönbein detected is the same as that occurring in the vicinity of a thunderstorm, an odor that indicates the presence of ozone in the atmosphere.


2.  from Wikipedia.com

Otto Heinrich Warburg (October 8, 1883, Freiburg im Breisgau – August 1, 1970, Berlin), son of physicist Emil Warburg, was a German physiologist, medical doctor and Nobel laureate. Warburg was one of the twentieth century's leading biochemists.[1]

In 1924, Warburg hypothesized that cancer, malignant growth, and tumor growth are caused by the fact that tumor cells mainly generate energy (as e.g. adenosine triphosphate / ATP) by non-oxidative breakdown of glucose (a process called glycolysis). This is in contrast to "healthy" cells which mainly generate energy from oxidative breakdown of pyruvate. Pyruvate is an end-product of glycolysis, and is oxidized within the mitochondria. Hence and according to Warburg, cancer should be interpreted as a mitochondrial dysfunction.

"Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar." -- Dr. Otto H. Warburg in Lecture [7]

Warburg continued to develop the hypothesis experimentally, and held several prominent lectures outlining the theory and the data.[8]

The concept that cancer cells switch to glycolysis has become widely accepted, even if it is not seen as the cause of cancer. Some suggest that the Warburg phenomenon could be used to develop anticancer drugs.[9] Meanwhile, cancer cell glycolysis is the basis of positron emission tomography (18-FDG PET), a medical imaging technology that relies on this phenomenon.[9][10]

The best modern summary of Warburg's monumental work, including a newly developed practical method to increase cellular oxygenation, may be found in the book, The Hidden Story of Cancer, by Brian Scott Peskin, BSEE-MIT with clinical researcher Amid Habib, M.D.


3. From Wikipedia (and he created ozonated oils for treatment with local doctors)

Nikola Tesla (10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943) was an inventor and a mechanical and electrical engineer. He was one of the most important contributors to the birth of commercial electricity and is best known for his many revolutionary developments in the field of electromagnetism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Tesla's patents and theoretical work formed the basis of modern alternating current (AC) electric power systems, including the polyphase system of electrical distribution and the AC motor, with which he helped usher in the Second Industrial Revolution.

Born an ethnic Croat in the village of Smiljan, Croatian Military Frontier, Austrian Empire (today's Croatia). He was a subject of the Austrian Empire by birth and later became an American citizen.[1] After his demonstration of wireless communication through radio in 1894 and after being the victor in the "War of Currents", he was widely respected as one of the greatest electrical engineers who worked in America.[2] Much of his early work pioneered modern electrical engineering and many of his discoveries were of groundbreaking importance. During this period, in the United States, Tesla's fame rivaled that of any other inventor or scientist in history or popular culture,[3] but because of his eccentric personality and his seemingly unbelievable and sometimes bizarre claims about possible scientific and technological developments, Tesla was ultimately ostracized and regarded as a mad scientist.[4][5] Tesla never put much focus on his finances. It is said he died impoverished, at the age of 86.[6]

The International System of Units unit measuring magnetic field B (also referred to as the magnetic flux density and magnetic induction), the tesla, was named in his honor (at the Conférence Générale des Poids et Mesures, Paris, 1960), as well as the Tesla effect of wireless energy transfer to wirelessly power electronic devices (which Tesla demonstrated on a low scale with incandescent light bulbs as early as 1893 and aspired to use for the intercontinental transmission of industrial power levels in his unfinished Wardenclyffe Tower project).

Aside from his work on electromagnetism and electromechanical engineering, Tesla contributed in varying degrees to the establishment of robotics, remote control, radar, and computer science, and to the expansion of ballistics, nuclear physics,[7] and theoretical physics. In 1943, the Supreme Court of the United States credited him as being the inventor of the radio.[8] A few of his achievements have been used, with some controversy, to support various pseudosciences, UFO theories, and early New Age occultism.
